To Whom It May Concern,

I, Tim Gerety, would like to thank all of our loyal customers for all the years of support, referrals and references you have given me. Because of you, Iowa-Illinois Basement Waterproofing has become the successful company that it is. After 33 years of service it has become time for me to retire. I needed to find someone to take over the business but I also wanted to find someone who operated their business with the same principals and standards as Iowa-Illinois Basement Waterproofing — experience, ethics and excellence.

Out of all my competitors in our area that do basement waterproofing, Kory of Absolutely Dry Basement Waterproofing was the only person that I could trust to perform to the same standards and work ethics as myself. Kory and Absolutely Dry Basement Waterproofing has been in business for 11 years and are very well equipped to handle any job. I also noticed that Kory and his crews do good quality work.

So I approached Kory about taking over Iowa-Illinois Basement Waterproofing and Home Services and after a few meetings we agreed on a deal. I am very happy with this because all of you will continue to get the same excellent service at a fair price from Kory and his crews. Kory and Absolutely Dry Basement Waterproofing will clearly be the leader in our area who you can trust to give you a dry basement and to provide you with good quality workmanship at a fair price. They also will be able to fix all your old sump pumps and battery back up systems as needed.

Thank you for all the years and all the smiles.
